Clean and Simple

You should see my upline's inspiration wall! It's AWESOME and it's the place where she puts all the cards fronts she receives in swaps. There's so much to look at and everytime I look at it, I see something new that I'm sure wasn't there before (it probably was, but I'm getting old you know - LOL!)

Anyway, I saw a card similar to the one below a few days ago and just HAD to CASE it. Fortunately, my upline is great about letting me steal...err....borrow the stamp sets that she owns, so I borrowed Sweet Stems from her in order to stamp the card.
The first thing I did was use my Scallop Circle Punch to punch out a template which I then used to create the lightly coloured scalloped circle in the middle of the card.

Then I inked up my stamp and stamped the image directly on top of the circle, leaving a little bit of the stem hanging down.

Lastly I tied a piece of Rose Red Ribbon around the card and called it done! Clean and Simple at it's best!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Sweet Stems
INK: Rose Red
PAPERS: Whisper White Cardstock

Happy Stampin'!
